Premium Chardonnay grapes are gently pressed to release the purest of juice.
Barrel fermented and aged sur lie for 11 months in 80% French and 20% American oak barrels (40% new oak).
A partial (50%) malolactic fermentation to soften acidity and add complexity, yet retaining enough acidity to refresh the palate.
Lemon yellow colour with a delicate bouquet of toast, biscuit, ripe apple and spice.
A medium to full-bodied Chardonnay with an elegant structure.
Flavours of green apple, pear, lemon, spice and delicate oak notes on the palate.
Lemon, spice and toast notes linger wonderfully on the finish.
